Features & Functions

Before you make an informed decision, check out the various features and functions of the Stamina Air Rower:

Resistance Type

It is an air-resistance rower, which means the faster or harder you row, the more wind you generate; the more wind you produce, the hard it is to row. The resistance level is related to the intensity of your input, if you feel like doing a light workout today, you just don’t row that hard. You get the most from your workout in an hour without having to pause to adjust the resistance.

Total Workout

The Stamina Air Rower engages all muscles in your body, at the same time, builds muscle strength and stamina. It is suitable for beginners as well as experienced athletes looking to work their quadriceps, back, biceps and chest. Due to the angle of the seat rail, the initial push-off is more difficult as compared to the finishing motion, your legs will need to work more during each push-off. This provides a greater pull against gravity thus working your lower body.

Display Screen

The monitor, powered by 2 AA batteries displays speed, distance, time and calories burned to track important workout data. It turns off automatically after 4 minutes of inactivity.

Quality

The frame is made from solid steel and feels very sturdy to last for years. The nylon strap is durable to handle the abuse over time from workouts. Solid base prevents the machine from moving side to side no matter how hard you row.
